Corn harvest is rolling on across the Midwest. Currently, 39% of the U.S. crop has been harvested, according to USDA’s latest crop progress and condition ratings. The five-year average for this time of year is 13%.

North Carolina and Texas are on a regular harvest pace, while the other leading states are 20 percentage points or more ahead of their respective five-year averages.

Soybean harvest is also moving along at a fast clip. Currently 22% of the crop is harvested, way ahead of the five-year average of 8%.

Louisiana, Mississippi and North Dakota all have 50% or more of their state’s crop out of the field.
